Kerry Katona shares she was once so poor she ‘sold her parrot to buy tampons’

Former I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! star Kerry Katona has revealed she once had to sell her pet parrot to buy sanitary products.

Kerry, 41, revealed she had to take the drastic move when she was just 17, as she didn't have enough money.

The mum of four opened up on her tough childhood in Warrington in a chat with The Times.

She told The Times: "When I was 17 we sold my parrot, Alfie, for £20 so I could buy some Tampax.

"I had this gig paying me £50 to dance in a nightclub and I got my period, so I needed sanitary towels, but we didn’t have the money.

“That was the last we heard of Alfie!”

Kerry has made millions over the years, but in 2008, she was declared bankrupt.

However, Kerry recently shared that after joining photo-sharing site OnlyFans, she is a millionaire once more.

Speaking on Carly in Convo on Daily Star's Facebook page, Kerry shared: “Since last March, I’ve made well over a million.”

Keen to defend sharing content on the racy site, Kerry said: “I was watching Love Actually because it’s a Christmas film. I’m watching Martin Freeman and Joanna Page, and she’s laying naked, she’s got her boobs out. She doesn’t get slagged off for it, why is that? Who says in society what’s right or wrong?

“She’s simulating sex and we’re all laughing and finding it funny. She’s got her boobs out for work and that’s what I’m doing. I’m not even simulating sex.”

Kerry added: “They win awards and it’s called art. If I was on the cover of Vogue magazine in a mesh see-through top with itty bitty teeny boobies that would be classed as art and fashion. Society puts you in a certain place of who can do this and who can do that.”
